  1. Thank You for the instruction, 5 Euro is a reasonable price for professional pdf. :thumbup:

    Bit off: I might still miss it, but is there any chance for insructions for your Samurai? :blush:

    hey you're welcome!

    there arent instructions for the samurai but i might rebuild a MK2 version in black so i have more parts to use rather than dark blue and then make em :)

    Hello.

    A beautiful model, very close to the original.

    Is cassis as the fiat panda 4x4 structured?

    thank you man!

    not really, fiat panda was more bulky, this one is tidier and has a better steering system :)

    PS: does anybody know a way so people can send money and recive the PDF immediately?

    Hi there guys! i had these instructions for a while and i totally forgot them!

    If anybody is interested in purchasing them for 5€ (i think it should be reasonable) send me a PM and i'll send you back the details

    Thanks to anyone who will support me buying them, it will help me out a lot for the future models :)

  3. Nice to see how that clutch is integrated since it's not on a bike wheel now. Is the braking system done using the rear servo applying pressure to the clutch wheel?

    With your gearbox, do you think gearing it up instead of down would be possible since it's such a light model?

    I had to smile imagining this as an official set, because it would have about 200 parts with over €200 of electronics :tongue: (and you had to add those yellow panels didn't you?)

    Cant wait for the video! I think a smooth tennis court would be great for testing this. Hope the wheels hold on in the corners!

    thank you :P

    yeah i was thinking the same there's over 200€ of electronics lol

    by the way the motor is geared 1:1 in first gear and 2:1 in second.

    you've got it right, the braking system pushes a rubber beam on the clutch gear, it was the lightest and most efficient way of making it and i didn't expect it to be that strong!

    as there's the clutch having the proportional control for the throttle didn't make much sense so i made a custom controller and compared to the standard ones it's

    more comfortable.

    The steering is still proportional tho

    here's the scheme!

    i hope ill be able to shoot a video as soon as possible because i wanna start studying bikes :P

    i've seen videos on youtube with no counterweights for rc bikes, wich means that proportional control is enough to balance them... it will take some practice tho i guess XD

    Hey there guys!

    I finally got myself an S-brick, i wanted to test it out so i built this go-kart.

    Functions:

    - 2 gears gearbox

    - auto clutch

    - braking system

    - differential

    The vehicle turned out to be pretty fast and with a great handling, unfortunately i need to wait some better weather to shoot a video of it and a bigger place as well.

    Like in a real kart there's no reverse gear so i'll probably need something like a parking lot to test it out.

    The gearbox is working great with the buttons of the S-brick operating the M motor

    I hope you'll like it!

  5. Hi there!

    I've been using this system for a while in some of my cars but i never thought about how good it would be on a bike.

    So here's my test before i start messing with an actual bike.

    It works pretty well, i had to cheat a little bit cutting a 3L into 3 bits of half stud to strenghten the rubber parts in the clutch.

    It will basically allow the bike run free from the motor, wich means that it won't fall down as soon as you release the power button. HOPEFULLY :D

    hope you'll like it!


  6. Just to see if I'm following this correctly, there is no official LEGO version of the springs you used for the macpherson strut, or do they come from an existing shock thats dismantled?

    Thanks

    you have to dismount one original shock absorber and take out the spring so you can use it in that way ;)
